Please note, the below relates to the 2019 event, more details on the 2020 ceremony will be shared soon!

Our annual Consultancy & Engineering Awards celebrate the best that the industry has to offer.

Championing the best people, initiatives and companies from across the engineering and consultancy world, the 2019 Consultancy & Engineering Awards will recognise the achievements of both ACE members and non-member organisations.

To tie in with the ACE’s Future of Consultancy campaign, there will be four new champion categories representing some of the key areas that the campaign will address: Strategic Planning & Placemaking Champion, Integrated Project Team of the Year (Public Sector), Integrated Project Team of the Year (Private Sector), and Data-led Asset Performance Champion.

Entries are now closed for the competition with the expert judging panel, chaired by Roger Bailey of Thames Tideway, having the impossible task of choosing the winners.

The gala ceremony takes place on Thursday 6 June 2019 and follows a black-tie dinner. To book your place, click here.
